As individuals, everyone could fit into at least one of these categories. Most people don’t want to be shunned by sharing who they are. People often times are caught up with the illness and don’t see the person. That’s stigma. The illness becomes the identity instead of the other way around. What is it that scares people so much that many go out of there way to isolate someone that’s different then they are? If someone didn’t know you had a mental illness, do you believe they would treat you as an equal? I’m inclined to say, yes. However, we live in a world that is not always honest about this issue.
